CHELCO allows net metering for interconnected renewable generation with a maximum capacity of 50 KW (kilowatts). Members who choose to sell power back onto the grid can do so at the cooperative’s avoided cost of generation.

If you have or are interested in installing a renewable resource generator that would produce more electricity than your current needs, please review the proposed Net Metering Rider available by
clicking here.  All interested parties must complete CHELCO’s Net Metering Application for approval prior to interconnection. 

ndividuals who are interested in interconnection of renewable generators in excess of 50 KW in capacity must meet the standards set forth in the Consumer Distributed Generation Guide, available by clicking here. 

For more information on net metering/interconnection, please contact CHELCO’s Marketing Department at (850) 892-5069, Ext. 120 or by e-mail at
